If anything, if Trump used his lawyer to finance the payment, it looks like he went out of his way to avoid using his campaign stash.

Doesn't matter.  Again, if funds were used to advance the campaign, that comes under federal law.

How would this be "advancing the campaign?" This seems to be more of a personal matter.

The trouble is the money did not come directly from Trump so it will be next to impossible to make that connection...assuming it happened to begin with.

Actually, as I understand it, there are two issues (at least) here.

One, that money was spent by Trump's personal lawyer to pay off Stormy just two months before the 2016 election, to keep her quiet. It would not be unreasonable to infer that keeping her silent was in the best interest of the Trump for President campaign, and therefore these funds would fall under federal campaign finance law. For that to apply, it would not matter if Trump or his lawyer provided the funds - once the want to further the campaign they fell under the law.

Two, did Trump's lawyer provide the funds with the assumption he would be reimbursed by Trump for the expenditure? Perhaps. It's also possible that since he is Trump's lawyer, he could simply bill Trump for X amount of hours of legal services equal to $130,000 and thus recoup his expenditure while skirting campaign finance law reporting requirements. This may be what they did, or plan on doing. I am not a lawyer so I don't know if that is too risky even for an incompetent lawyer to do. It's a form of money laundering, isn't it?

In a nutshell, however, the case could be made regardless of who provided the funds, funds were paid to hush a porn star who might otherwise go public and threaten the Trump campaign. If these funds were not properly reported as campaign expenditures this could spell trouble for Trump AND his lawyer.

Sure is a lot of what ifs going on in this thread.  It is starting to feel as if those on the left are beginning to feel that the whole collusion claim is falling flat and they are now looking for something to stick.

Well, we know for sure Trump scrogged her.  No more "where's the proof" statements.
